Welcome to the Fernandez-Sesma lab!

The Fernandez-Sesma laboratory studies innate immunity evasion by viruses of human health interest, such a dengue virus (DENV), influenza virus and other viruses, such as HIV. The main area of research in the Fernandez-Sesma laboratory is DENV, which is the most important mosquito transmitted virus in the world for which no vaccines or antiviral drugs are available.
